My favourite books of 2018 (so far)

The first half of 2018 has been good to me reading-wise. I've read so many good books already and I hope my good luck will continue on in the next half of the year! I have rated all of these books either four or five stars and there was something about each of these books that I really loved reading.

Eight movies that should be books

Do you ever watch a movie that you loved and wish that there was a book version of it? There are so many movies that were firstly books, but there are also a lot of movies that were simply turned into movie because of an original screenplay. I've thought of eight movies I really enjoyed and after watching them wished that there was a book based on the story. 

The Get to Know Me Tag

Five-Star Predictions Update

In November of 2017, I wrote a post that listed five books I thought would end up being five-star reads. The books I chose were Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, Renegades by Marissa Meyer, Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson, The Comfort Zone by Sally Thorne and Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. It took me a while - because I forgot about the books I chose - but I have finally read the books (except for one, which isn't my fault!). 

Answering My Blog’s Search Terms

Today I have a bit of a random post. There is a feature on WordPress that allows you to view what others have searched to get to your blog, but most of the time it says 'unknown search term.' Out of almost two years of blogging, I have only been able to view eleven terms. Some of them are funny, so I thought I would answer them in this post.

Writing Update and Camp NaNoWriMo

Writing, for me, comes and goes in waves, but recently I have been getting back into my personal writing. I say 'personal' because I have to do a bit of writing for school and I feel like it doesn't really count. I have already worked on two different stories this year - unfinished, obviously - and I have liked setting aside about an hour each night to spend writing. Granted, I do not do this every night, but it has been therapeutic and good to put my writing into practice.
